I like the wax on, wax off approach Curry in one hand, bristle in the other.

Good article - I try to avoid bathing my horses wherever possible too. If they are so dirty ie the condition they come in from their holidays then they get a hose bath, I have a plastic curry comb that attached to the hose. I use it in a circular motion until all the run off water is clean. This type of wash doesn't remove the oils just the dirt, after that they get thorough groomed each day.

This is a grooming shine - never bathed ever.

I have always done it in this order (unless I forget something :)
1. Curry comb
2. Hard brush
3. If I need a spray I use it after this brush so that the next brush can rub it into the horse's skin
4. Soft brush (unless I'm REALLY short on time)
5. Any body brushes you also need to use
6. Face brush
7. Hooves
8. Mane and tail

This is the order I go in:
1. Rubber Curry comb
2. Dandy brush (on face and tail too)
3. Body brush
4. Mane comb
5. Then I usually put some sort of conditioner to make everything look nice and shiny.

Why do people have a 'face brush' - it seems to be the trend from the past decade or so. My 'face brush' is the body brush - it has soft bristles!

Maybe your body brush is actually a dandy brush, that's what I use on their faces - they're super soft!

No - my body brush is a body brush with soft bristles - it is what it was designed for!

It's another tool that company's made for consumers to spend more money on. IMO
